Many thanks to fellow SNS member and racer, Vince Mayeda, who reps the DJ Safety line, for helping me to see my vision through of a retro-inspired SFI-rated jacket to be worn at the races. I grew tired of the same old styles in this area of drag racing, never seeing the ""old"" styles of the sixties. Vince and I talked, he dusted off some old suits he had stashed away, patterns were made, and this is the first prototype/demo unit!!! It looks, and feels incredible compared to my old RJS unit. Being made from Nomex, instead of Proban, it retains a very ""light"" feel! This creamy white is identical to the shade manufactured in the mid to late 60's and with time, will dull down to a yellowed slightly worn look, and we are going to make a version in the darker ""wheat"" color, that will patina down to a light brown over time, being exposed to sunlight. Vince is the go-to guy for these as they are made at DJ from his patterns of jackets he's kept over the years. I promise you will not be disappointed with the quality, looks or feel!!
